Sparks police are asking for your help as they try to find a man who reportedly tried to lure an 11-year-old boy into a van near school.

According to police, an 11-year-old boy was riding his bike around Bud Beasley Elementary School in Sparks. They say a 70's model Ford Ecoline van drove up, and the driver tried to lure the boy in. The boy kept riding home, but the van followed. Fortunately the boy made it home and told his mother, who called police.

Police returned to the area but were unable to find the suspect. The suspect van is described as a 70's model Ford Econoline van, sun faded red with rust spots mainly on the rear portion of the van, no windows on the sides other than the driver and passenger door, and two windows on the back.

Police say he may have had a dog in the van as well.

The driver is described as a white man, age 35 to 40. He had brown hair and a medium build. He was wearing dark sunglasses at the time of the luring. 

If you have any information that could help, call Sparks Police or Secret Witness at 322-4900 or text your tip to 847411. Your call will remain anonymous.
